The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said that it received preliminary information late Monday afternoon that the Hakken family, sought in recent Amber Alerts, fled to Cuba. An Amber Alert was re-issued Friday for Cole Hakken, 4, and Chase Hakken, 2, who may be on a sailboat with their parents Joshua Hakken, 35, and Sharyn Hakken, 34, who do not have legal custody of them, authorities said late last week. Larry McKinnon and Cpl. Kevin Bodie of the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office spoke about the case.

A Miami Lakes family urged the public to help them find their missing 15-year-old daughter.

Samantha Rivero has been missing since 8 a.m. Thursday, when her mother last saw her.

“This is a parent’s worst nightmare,” said her mother Madeline Rivero in an email statement.

Miami-Dade Police put a "Be On the Lookout" for the girl.

The family has plastered fliers all over their neighborhood.

A friend said the teen stopped by her house Thursday night and then left with an unknown adult who Rivero called “Pub.”

“That’s why we are extremely worried. She would have called. She hasn’t. We don’t know who she is with. And we’re scared for her,” Madeline Rivero said.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 305-698-1500.
